What are the features/ capabilities I should be looking for in a good inventory management software?


Recommended Posts

A good inventory management software should have the following capabilities:

  • Keep track of your inventory in real-time
  • Help you forecast demand based on your sales 
  • Notifies you when there is a shortage of product and production
  • Advises you should there be excess stock or too many raw materials
  • Allow for easy inventory analysis on any device (monitor, phone, tablet, etc.
  • Able to seamlessly integrate with your retail point-of-sale system and other business tools.
  • Offer quick and painless bar code scanning to speed up the check-out process and intake of data to the system
  • Allows for multilocation management, tracking inventory across several locations (warehouses, stockrooms, etc.)
  • Allows working through different sales channels (e-commerce, physical stores, online marketplace, etc.)

Good inventory management can help you track your inventory in real-time to hasten the process. With this, you can be sure that you have the right products in the right quantity on hand and avoid products being out of stock and money went to waste due to excess stock. 

You can also ensure your products are sold in time to avoid spoilage, obsolescence, or spending too much money on a stock that’s taking up space in a warehouse or stockroom. Good inventory management software can help you reduce costs, save you and your employees’ time, improve cash flow, and boost your overall business performance.
